The Great Economists: How Their Ideas Can Help Us Today.

For centuries, the world’s great economists have attempted to understand and grapple with the problems of humans, goods and money but, too often, their ideas are hard to digest, before we even try to apply them to today’s issues. A Kilkenomics regular, Linda Yueh is renowned for her combination of erudition, as an accomplished economist herself, and accessibility, as a leading writer and broadcaster in this field; and in her new book – The Great Economists – she explains the key thoughts of history’s greatest economists, how their lives and times affected their ideas, how our lives have been influenced by their work, and how they could help with the policy challenges that we face today. An unmissable conversation with David McWilliams.
